The Stars Astronomy Wallpaper

The Stars Astronomy Wallpaper is a dark Hubble wallpaper sized image, featuring an inspiring (and often incorrectly attributed) Sarah Williams quote.

If you haven't had a chance to look at NASA's high resolution Hubble pics, let me suggest that you give it a look immediately. The updated lens has given us all a crystal clear peephole to many of the galaxies wonders. With our love of NASA in mind, we've decided to highlight one of our favorite new shots for this months wallpaper. If you're a space fan, a nature fan, or just love beautiful quotes - you'll probably love it.

The Old Astronomer to His Pupil

Reach me down my Tycho Brahe, I would know him when we meet,
When I share my later science, sitting humbly at his feet;
He may know the law of all things, yet be ignorant of how
We are working to completion, working on from then to now.

Pray remember that I leave you all my theory complete,
Lacking only certain data for your adding, as is meet,
And remember men will scorn it, 'tis original and true,
And the obloquy of newness may fall bitterly on you.

But, my pupil, as my pupil you have learned the worth of scorn,
You have laughed with me at pity, we have joyed to be forlorn,
What for us are all distractions of men's fellowship and smiles;
What for us the Goddess Pleasure with her meretricious smiles!

You may tell that German College that their honor comes too late,
But they must not waste repentance on the grizzly savant's fate.
Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

Sarah Williams
